Laura & Nick had a fabulous New England clambake themed wedding at Kempenaar’s Clambake Club back in August. Lots of love, friendship and GREAT food! The public clambake is a tradition for my family so it was nice to revisit the venue to document another family’s enjoyment there. KCC is a big tradition with Nick’s family, so it was a familiar setting for his side.
Here is what Laura said when she saw her photos:
You are truly amazing! These pictures are exactly what I wanted! I relived each moment of the entire day through your eyes but in some sense my eyes too! You have a true talent, the gift of preserving a memory timelessly. I know you understand mean and this may seem corny and trivial but sometime watch the movie Tinker Bell and think my 5 year old daughter and I… I have already gave your name to another bride and I will continue to highly recommend you as it is worth every penny… and in some way invaluable.
Thanks with all my heart!
Laura’s dress details and comfy wedding shoes!
Happy dogs lounging during the “dog days of summer”. Too cute!!

Moment #2: Laura’s mom & sister walking her leave….
While Laura was walking down the stairs in the previous picture, I swung the camera up to the top of the stairs to capture this nice moment of Laura’s mom & sister. See? 1 photographer can get multiple moments! 🙂
Laura’s sister exchanging a glance at her parents in the front row from her maid-of-honor seat at the altar…

A happy moment on the trolley back into Newport on our way to formals…
The kids were being so patient!
We had such beautiful weather….72 degrees and no humidity in the middle of August! Amazing. And a little cloud diffusion….a photographer favorite.

A quick bride & groom portrait at KCC
Faith Dugan Hardware: So this was a unique idea I’ve never seen before. There was a box of holes that was about 3×4 feet wide. Next to the box, guests could fill out messages to the couple, roll up the colored paper, and slide it into the box. Laura & Nick read 1 message every day after they returned from their honeymoon. Such a fun idea! So of course, I incorporated the color and the rolled up paper in my ring-art for them! 🙂
No vendor chicken dinner here!!!!! Mhmmmm hmm! Thanks for the great meal, Laura. It’s much appreciated!
